Upcoming Walk-Up Vaccination Clinics: No Appointment Needed

Press release from Alachua County

The Florida Department of Health in Alachua County (DOH-Alachua) is offering free walk-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics. These clinics do not require appointments and are available for Florida residents ages 18 years and older (16 years or older for the April 16 event) in Alachua County.

To receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Florida, participants must bring proof of residency. Please see this residency notice for the requirements needed to prove residency.

The times and locations include:

  • April 16, 2021, from 9 a.m. until noon at the Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Center (1028 N.E. 14th Street, Gainesville). This walk-up clinic is offering the Pfizer Vaccine and is available for those 16 and older.
  • April 17, 2021, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Fellowship Church of High Springs (16916 N.W. US HWY 441, High Springs). This walk-up clinic is offering the Moderna Vaccine and is available for those 18 and older.

For residents who are under 18 years old, DOH-Alachua is offering only the Pfizer vaccine (this is available at the April 16 clinic). For all individuals under 18, a parent/guardian must be present at the time of vaccination and sign the COVID-19 vaccine consent form.

To expedite visits, participants should download and fill-out the appropriate consent form and bring it with them to this event. Those who are unable to download this form and print it out, forms will be available at the event. Read and review the appropriate Fact Sheet and Notice of Privacy Practices.

  • If the county and city, and the university, are truly concerned about getting “shots” in arms, maybe they should offer the resources…read “transportation,” like they did during the last election cycle.
    Then people wouldn’t have to “walk-up.”
